    I have been using Dreamhost, but now they are throttling the MySQL connections. It's a bummer when I am only using about 2% of CPU. We don't have the funds to move to a dedicated environment. Most of our users are in the US so we'd rather have a stateside host… I recognize you get what you pay for, but at most we'd pay $15/mo.

    I helped setup a vb site on MediaTemple's Grid Hosting Service ($20/mo). I generally don't use shared hosting services, but wanted to see how MT's premium features address mysql support. It's impressive:

    That's great to hear can you provide the domain name and how long you have been with them?

    Mxhub is not cheap, but I have found it to be very reliable and customer-friendly.

    How come? I keep hearing to steer clear but I never know why.

    I can never understand why people recommend GoDaddy hosting. Steer clear.

    Talk to Tim at GlobalGold...www.globalgold.co.uk. they are specialist vBulletin hosts. I switched to them in March after recommendations on here and I can't praise them highly enough. My site finally works properly after years of unpredictable behaviour.

    I had a friend who had a bad experience a long time ago with GoDaddy, so I would rather go elsewhere. Thanks for the suggestion though, and your site does seem to run quick. I am certainly not putting down GoDaddy as I don't have the personal experience to relate to.

    I have now limited it to URLJet, GlobalGold and MediaLayer. Knownhost would fit me if I were bigger, but I'm not....

    Does anyone know... does GlobalGold use Apache or Litespeed, and does anyone have personal experience with Litespeed with VBulletin? I have heard that it speeds up your forum nicely v. Apache, but would like to hear if anyone had any bad experiences with it, or prefer to go with the old standard.

    Godaddy deluxe should be enough. I'm running a site much bigger than yours and it's handling it sweet. I figure soon I will have to go VPS but riding it out till then.
